While writing this post, I thought about the Democratic Party’s disgusting tactics. First, here’s what caught my attention:

But his billionaire friends at Hubbard Broadcasting won’t air an ad that uses his own words to call him out.

And here’s the kicker: the owner of Hubbard Broadcasting, Stanley Hubbard, is a major donor to Mills’ campaign and a friend of the Koch brothers. When a media station owned by someone who has maxed out to a candidate is keeping voters from knowing where that candidate stands, something’s not right.

TakeAction Minnesota is one of the DFL’s front organizations. They, along with organizations like the Alliance for a Better Minnesota and AFSCME PEOPLE, specialize in smearing Republican candidates. In this instance, they’re unloading both barrels on Stewart Mills.

There’s more to this than just a smear campaign.

That’s bad enough but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s remember that Al Franken enthusiastically signed a letter to the IRS telling them to crack down on TEA Party organizations. We know that the IRS and other government agencies made life a living hell for Catherine Engelbrecht.

The DFL, like the Democratic Party nationally, is the party that’s deployed ‘weaponized government’ to harass people that don’t agree with them. They used the IRS, OSHA and the ATF to harass TEA Party organizations. They’ve used the EPA to intimidate private property owners.

It isn’t a stretch to think that the DFL might organize a boycott of KSTP. Further, it isn’t a stretch to think that Sen. Franken’s friend Chuck Schumer might ask the FCC to look into KSTP’s broadcast license. They unleashed the IRS against the TEA Party. Why wouldn’t these senators use other government agencies to harass their political enemies?

Just the threat of a boycott by the DFL would have a chilling effect on stations. Having advertisers leave their station because TakeAction Minnesota and other DFL front groups is a threat stations would have to take seriously.

While this would be the first time that TakeAction Minnesota has organized a boycott against a business, it’s old hat for AFSCME:

Last month, Dawn Bobo, owner of Village Dollar Store in Union Grove, Wis., was asked to display a pro-union sign in her window. Ms. Bobo, a self- described conservative Republican, refused and received a letter from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees asking her to reconsider. “Failure to do so will leave us no choice but do [sic] a public boycott of your business,” the letter said.

It isn’t coincidence that AFSCME PEOPLE (Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality) is running the same defamatory ad that got pulled from KSTP and WDIO.

Why would anyone think that these thugs wouldn’t attempt to intimidate businesses into not criticizing DFL front groups when they run their smear campaigns? Contrary to Mitt Romney’s statements, these aren’t “nice people we simply disagree with.” These Democratic front groups are despicable, dishonest people that can’t be trusted because they won’t hesitate to use government as a weapon against their political enemies.
